LEGO Build Report: Bookshop

featured image for the Bookshop Lego build report

That awkward moment when you almost completely forget to blog about the LEGO build that is the MOST RELEVANT to your entire brand.

Actually, that might also be completely on-brand for me.

Last fall, I kicked the reorganization of my LEGO room guest room into high gear, which led to the completely obvious distraction of building another set instead of anything more productive. I always have so much fun with the Creator Expert sets, and the Bookshop was no exception. My town keeps growing, little by little, as does my space fleet. I adored so many of the architectural details of this very cool set, which I put together while listening to an audiobook.

Obviously, all LEGO building must be completed with appropriate feline supervision. Alex and Nicki were happy to volunteer. | Bookshop LEGO box placed on floor in front of large chair with 2 Siamese cats sitting above it.

Here are a few close-ups of the first half of the set, as the Creator Expert pieces are designed so that you can mix-and-match the order that you hook the buildings together. I had so much fun with the cool way the bricks were inverted to create bookshelves, and check out the adorable terrarium in the loft bedroom! | collage of in-progress pictures of the LEGO Bookshop set -- bookshop side

Next, I worked on the neighboring townhouse. What I love about this piece, other than the gorgeous color, is that it is not 3 stories like most of the buildings in this collection. Instead, it features a cellar beneath the elevated first floor, with a second floor on top. This changes up the silhouette of the full series hooked together. | collage of in-progress pictures of the LEGO Bookshop set -- townhouse side

And here’s the final set, including the minifigs!
